Monthly Club Meetings

Monthly Club Meeting

We hold monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of every month starting at 7:30 PM, often with an educational Brew Guru session starting at 7:00 PM.

Our meetings are held at:

Swiftwater Brewing

Swiftwater's kitchen will not be open for this event, but UNYHA will be providing pizza for this meeting. Beer will be available for purchase during the meeting.

There is no requirement that you bring homebrew to a meeting, but if you do, you will find plenty of folks willing to taste it and offer their feedback.


BJCP Training Sessions

We hold BJCP Tasting Sessions at 7:00 PM at Swiftwater Brewing, just before the monthly club meetings there which start 7:30 PM.

The BJCP is an international organization whose purpose is to train people to become judges for homebrew competitions. UNYHA supports this goal by holding monthly beer tasting sessions, designed to help club members become better brewers and judges.

Training Sessions consist of guided tastings of about a dozen good commercial examples within a particular style category as well as informal critiques and formal judging of homebrewed beers.

All club members are welcome to attend, even if you're not a judge and have no intention of taking the BJCP exam.

The cost of these sessions is subsidized by the club, but in some cases we might need to ask for a bit of money (no more than $10) to cover costs. In any case, you get your money's worth in good beer, sometimes including beers that you can't get in New York.


Pub of the Month

Pub of the Month sessions are held on the third Wednesday of the month at pubs selected by our Pub of the Month Czars. It is an informal gathering of club members which starts around 5:30 PM and runs to about 7:30 PM. PotM selections are announced via the club mailing list and in the newsletter about a month in advance.
